Subject: Tremendous Other One.
That's the case with this Other One. It's full of energy. Jerry just flies on some of his greatest bluegrass style picking, Billy is an animal throughout, and Phil is particularly active, at one point pushing the Feelin Groovy riff in the heat they lay down before Uncle. Uncle itself isn't my favorite version of this medley common of the time but keeps the energy going. This is one of those ones where they charge back into the Other One jam rather than dip into any serious spaciness. Any hint of slowing down is quickly built back up into fiery jams, no extended quiet segments or feedback sections here, there's barely time to breathe. They aren't yet exploring the quiet dynamics as much yet. Everybody seems to be paying attention to each other, never stumbling on any tempo, dynamic, or thematic changes. Except for Weir doing that thing where you're always expecting another bar of the main riff but he starts the verses instead.
At any rate this was an excellent choice for a release to drop an upgrade, it was much needed. At this time I honestly don't remember any specific highlights of the rest of the show, but definitely check out the jam, it delivers. Unfortunately this recording does not, if you don't own it I'm sure the Dave's Pick is easily streamable via spotify or YouTube.
The Dead played for hours!
Two Questions: Did Jerry play slide for the New Riders in the opening show ,Ike h3 did on their first album?
Was Pigpen still playing with the Dead then?
I can’t remember.
